Report On Private Jet Ownership In Nigeria

Nigerians have invested about N1.3 trillion in the acquisition of private jets in the last three years, according to the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV). The institute disclosed this in Lagos recently at an international seminar on plants and machinery valuation with focus on aircraft, oil and gas installations. The NIESV said that the number of privately-owned jets in the country has jumped from 50 in the last three years to 200.

The coordinator of the seminar, Paul Osuji, said that because of time constraints and other factors, the number of private jets would continue to be on the increase. He said that the seminar was organized to train their members on plant and machinery valuation, noting that at times, people purchase properties without knowing their real worth. According to him, professionals in Estate Surveying and Valuation are trained to value aircraft before they are paid for and brought into the country.

Osuji said that they have valued most of the private jets that are plying the Nigerian airspace “We are mandated by our profession to constantly train and retrain our members. After the last Dana Airlines crash, a lot of attention had been drawn to the aviation sector. People now want to know the airworthiness of the aircraft they want to pay for or they want to fly in. That is why we organize this seminar and most often, we bring our colleagues from other parts of the world to come and share their knowledge with us.

We are the only profession that is authorized by law to place value on any property .We are professionally trained to value properties and there is a world of difference between assessing a machinery and placing value on it. When the engineers assess a machine, what they are trying to find out is its workability. That has nothing to do with the value of the machine .It is the surveyors and valuers that have the requisite knowledge as well as the expertise to place values on items,”Osuji said.

In his opening remarks, NIESV president, Emeka Eleh, said that it is only by constant training that the members could differentiate themselves from quacks. He said if the members become proficient in their professions, when outsiders deal with them and the quacks, they would have no cause to patronize the quacks.(Source: DailySun)

    I agreed with the writer many people are busy criticising others while the people they critize keep increasing.

    It’s pointless to criticise the source of any man’s wealth.

    I envy these people. I pray for God’s blessing for myself.

    I believe one day, I will not be like them, I will be richer than all of them combined.

      this shows Nigerians are hipocrites, a pastor who can afford a private jet gets the money from his poor followers who sometimes can not pay thier house rent and afford education for their kids. they donates to pastors with the hope of getting richer……….Dancote and his group where militries with Babangida and getting to power they monopolise all Nigerian industries giving them the possibility to the most richest Nigerians…………..until we have democracy, right to free compolsory education, right to infomation, right to say no to corruption………….Nigerian will contiune to fall. what the rich men don’t know is thier generations also will ripe what they sow……….

    I see nothing wrong in making oneself comfortable but this is still the problem of African, imitation, we imitate the wights, we want to be like them, we want to do what they do not minding the cost. Is it economical owning a private jet? The cost of maintenance, fueling and paying of pilots. This is another way of increasing corruption and frauds in my country Nigeria because many now would want to be like them. Nigerians please think before you do.

        You are right, the day he dies he will not take any jet with him guaranteed, in fact it will be taken from them before they cover the ground. The irony that jet might take him straight to hell at 800 km/h.
        yep how many kids can be fed for the price of 20 or 30 million dollars jet ?

    If u don’t really need a jet why buying them. Some1 sometimes have more than one jet. It is not expedient to acquire a private jet when ur neighbours, friends and family members are suffering.

    I am short of words, as things are now, I am confused what to say especially to our pastors and father in the Lord. Who is their role model? Is it the Lord Jesus or the wicked and perversed people who amass wealth at the detriment of others citizens.

    The politicians are doing their own pastors self no relax

    where are we going to

    It is a lazy man that depends on another man”s wealth. He who wants to be rich should work harder and also have managerial ability. Dangote borrowed money from his uncle and invested with wisdom, but some will borrow and use it to sleep in a hotel drink and play gamble. Pray for God”s wisdom to be rich and stop gossiping, how your fellow man made his money does not concern u.

      Ochinawata, you know how much Dangote borrow from im uncle? How many pipol for naija get uncle wey go borrow dem money like dat. E get the kin money you go borrow wey nor go finish, you go take am drink, play gamble, dash some and even throway some sef and still e go reach you do business wey go still grow. Ok, even if you loss am or misuse am, dat uncle go say, “come take anoda one but nor loss this one this time”. I agree with you to pray for God’s wisdom but e must concern all of us how our fellow mna make money make we follow am tap from the wisdom,,if you say so….???

    There is nothing wrong in having a private jet, it is only a hard working, wise and intelligent man that gets wealthy. We want millions of them in this country.

    Why cant Africans learn to Celebrate their own rather than Criticise and rationalize other people’s achievements.
    If we think they stole to buy their luxuries, then let God be the judge, not Mere men.

    Learn the truth that what you respect soon or later comes to you.
